For the past twenty years, I have been a practicing Massage Therapist/Energy Practitioner.  I specialize in therapeutic Deep Tissue Neuro-muscular massage, Chi Nei Tsang (CNT), Shiatsu, Reiki, Reflexology and TMJ massage.  I am one of the few CNT practitioners in the Vancouver area, certified by the Universal Healing Tao Foundation in Thailand.  (CNT is an ancient Taoist abdominal practice, releasing stagnant energy and emotions, to restore optimal organ function and flow by using gentle massage, Qi, and specialized techniques). If you are interested in more information or a treatment, please contact me.

I learned about 'energy work and Reiki' soon after finishing my initial massage training.  As I learned about 'Ki' and experienced this 'life force energy', I also began to study Qigong.   'Ki' and 'Qi' are the same life force energy.  Today, Qigong encompasses the style of energy work that I teach regularly and personally use to maintain health and vitality.

I owe much of my current success to the training and inspiration provided by my first Qigong teacher, Grandmaster Li Jun Feng.  I was introduced to Qigong when Master Li toured North America in 1997, teaching Sheng Zhen Gong. After only one weekend of training, I discovered the extraordinary good feeling that accompanied doing these movements. With better health and flexibility, my sense of rhythm and dancing improved!  Soon, these movements also transformed my experience and success with meditation!  By late 1998, I became a teacher of Sheng Zhen Wuji Yuan Gong and have consistently taught Qigong since then. 

I am also grateful for the opportunity to study with Qigong Grandmaster Mantak Chia, in Thailand.  Master Chia has brought Chi Nei Tsang and many ancient Taoist Qigong practices to the West.  These Taoist practices are timeless in their application and many provide an excellent complement to more contemporary Qigong practices.  Some are also included on this website.

Through many years of meditation, Qigong practice, and teaching, I have been gifted with the movements and practices that comprise Golden Lotus Qigong.  While there may be other ancient practices with a similar name, the Golden Lotus practices on this website are contemporary and especially suited to the energy and evolutionary needs of our current time.  This has continued my own evolution as a teacher and practitioner.  As I have shared these sets of movements with my students, I have been blessed to witness the transformation that occurs.  

I particularly enjoy helping my students attain the ‘Qigong state’ during their practice. 

I look forward to sharing this timeless and universal healing practice. 

I offer private classes as well as group classes.  Refer to the Events Calendar for classes that are currently being offered.  I also offer a variety of treatments at the clinic that I am part of, Harmony Healing Centre.

Golden Lotus Qigong is a blend of traditional and contemporary movements that create a deeper experience of healing, balance and awareness.  

What makes Golden Lotus Qigong unique?

  • These sets of movements are inspired, for this unique period in human evolution, to assist in personal improvement and transformation.  From an ancient tradition that includes many, many forms of Qigong, there may even be others, with a similar name, but they do not encompass the same inspiration, healing or balance.
  • These movements can be learned and performed well by most practitioners with a relatively short amount of practice.  Many other Qigong movements are complex and require detailed instruction and lengthy practice to perform competently.  Having said this, regular and consistent practice of any Qigong will multiply the benefits.
  • The groups of movements that make up Golden Lotus Qigong practices, such as Kundalini Qigong, are inspired to create the maximum benefit to the practitioner, while keeping the movements easier to learn and perform.  Many other Qigong practices require months or years of discipline and dedicated practice to acquire the benefits. 
  • Golden Lotus Qigong practices include visualization, movement, mudras (hand positions), and some mantras to improve the practitioners relationship to the Qi.  'Perfection' is not a prerequisite to obtaining benefit through these practices. 

Guidelines for Learning

  • Each movement in a 'Golden Lotus Qigong practice' builds on the previous movements to create a unique experience of the Qi for each practitioner.  It is generally best to perform all of the movements in a practice rather than single-out specific movements.  Where there is a Part 2, it is best to perform Part 1 just before starting Part 2.   
  • Wear comfortable clothing and minimize restrictions to the flow of the Qi.
